The Promotion
(Morlcy Roberts,
(Continued from last week.)
When the admiral woke, which ho
did after hnlf an hour's slinking, nd
mtnlstcred In turns by three of the
California's crow, who wero nnxlous
to know where ho had stowed his bot
tlo of rum, ho was still confused by
tho "dopo" given him ashore. And
thon ho rose and rested on his elbow.
"Where am 17"
"On board tho California, to bo
"I'm dreaming," said the admiral,
"that's what It Is. To be sure, I'm
Tho admiral sat tin suddenly, and
by so doing brought his head Into vio
lent contact with the deck above him.
This woko him thoroughly Just In time
to receive Mr. Simpson, mate of tho
California, who came in llko a cyclono
to Inquire after his health.
"Did you ship as u dead man?"
asked Mr. Simpson, "for If you did
I'll undeceive you."
And with that he yanked the ndmlral
from his bunk and dragged him by
tho collar out upon the deck ut a run.
Ho rose at the end of his undlgullled
progress and stared at the mate.
"Who who are you?" ho said.
Mr. Simpson gasped.
"Who am I oh, who am I. Well,
I'll obllgo you by statin' once for all
that I'm mate of this ship, and you're
my dog. Now, you lunatic, take this
hero ball of twine and go overhaul
tho gear on the main. And If you
open your mouth to say another word
I'll murder you."
And though he could not believe ho
was doing it, Sir Richard Dunn
crawled aloft and did what he was
told. He was stunned.
"I I must bo mad," thought tho
"Now, then, look alive there, you
dead crawling cat," said Mr. Simpson,
"or I'll come up and boot you off the
yai. Do you hear mo?"
"Yos, sir," said the admiral, meek
ly, and ho murmured, "I suppose I
nevor'was an admiral after nil; I dcn'l
seom to know what I am."
And the hardest nut among the ad
mirala of tho nctlve list wiped a tear
with tho sleeve of his coat and came
down as ho was bid.
When the crew were at breakfast
next morning trouble began.
"Say, nre you an admiral?" aBked
Knight, the biggest tough on board ex
cept Simpson and Wiggins.
"Mind your own business," ho said.
And Knight hove a full pannikin of
tea at him. This compliment was re
ceived very quietly, and tho admiral
rose and went on deck.
"Takes water at once," said Knight;
"he ain't got tho pluck of a mouse."
But the admiral went aft and Inter
viewed Mr. Simpson.
"I wish to havo your permission to
knock tho head oft a man called
Knight, for'ard. Ho hovo a pannikin
of tea ovor me just now, nnd I think a
thrashing would do him good nnd con
duco to tho pence and order of tho
"Oh, you think so?" said Simpson.
"Very well, you have my permission
to introduce peaco there."
"I thank you, sir," said tho Admiral.
He touched his lint and went forward.
Ha put his head inside the fo'c's'le and
addressed Knight:
"Como outside, you bully, and let mo
knock your head off. Mr. Simpson has
been kind enough to overlook tho
breach of discipline Involved."
And Knight, nothing lqth, came out
on dock, whilo Simpson and Wiggins
stood a little way off to enjoy tho bat
tle. And in five minutes his mates car
ried Knight into tho fo'c's'le.
"I don't know when I enjoyed my
self more," said Simpson, with a sigh.
After that the Admiral had peaco
and loarnt something ovory day, und
not least from Knight, who proved by
no means a bad sort of man when ho
bad once met his match.
The Admiral and Simpson never had
a cross word till they wero south of
tho Horn. Then by chanco tho mate
and tho captain had a few words which
onded In Simpson getting much tho
worst of It. As luck would havo it tho
Admiral was the handiest to vent his
spite on, and Simpson caught him a
smack on tho side of his head that
made him see stars. And when the
Admiral picked himself off tho deck
Simpson made a rush for him. The
'Admiral dodged him and shot up the
poop-ladder. At any other time Bla
ker, the captain, would havo gone for
tho seaman who dared to escape a
thrashing for tho moment by desecra
ting tho poop, but now ho was willing
to annoy Simpson.
"Well, what do you want?" he
"Well, sir, I wanted to know whether
Western Ocean custom goes here.' I'vo
been told that If I thrash your mato
I shall havo his Job. Thoy say for
ward that that's your rule, and If ho,
sir, I should like your permission to
send Mr. Simpson forward and take
his place."
Capt. Dlaker laughed. Ho went to
the break of tho poop and addressed
the mate.
"Do you hear, Mr. Simpson?" he in
quired, genially,
"Send him down, air," snld Simpson.
"Are you suro you can pound him?"
Simpson gritted his teeth and
foamed at tho mouth.
"Kick him off the poop, sir."
"Are you willing to stako everything
on your flghtln' abilities, Mr. Simp
eon?" And when Simpson said "Aye"
of the Admiral
In The 3trnnd.)
through his teeth, tho Admiral Jumped
down on tho mnin deck.
Now, according to nil precedents,
tho flg'tt should have been long and
nrduous, with varying fortunes. Hut
tho admiral never regarded precedents,
nnd Inside of ten seconds Mr. Simpson
was lying totally Insensible under the
spare topmast. To encounter the ad
miral's right Hat was to escape death
by n hair's breadth, and It took
Charles Simpson, able seaman (vice
Mr. Simpson, chief olllcer), two hours
and a quarter lo come to.
"And I tho't ho could fight," said
the disgusted shipper; "come right up,
Mr. Wbni's-yoiir-namo. vou're the man
for me. Thito ain't no reason for you
to trouble about my second mate, for
Simpson could l.iy him out easy. All
1 aak of you Is to work the whole
crowd ip good. And I don't caro If you
are an admiral, you arc the right sort
all the kmiij. I jjuess that Simpson
must havo reckoned he struck a cy
clone." And Hlaker rubbed his hands. Like
.Simpson at the light between the ad
miral and Knight, Jie did not know
when he bad enjoyed himself more.
Ho Improved the occasion by going be
low and getting fur too much to drink,
ns was his custom, and the promoted
admiral took charge of the deck.
"Ability tells everywhere," said Sir
Richard Dunn. ' 1 didn't rise In the
service for nothing. Ship me where
you like, nnd I'll come to tho top. If I
didn't take this hooker Into New York
as captain and muster I'll die in the
Ho had quite come to himself, and
was beginning to enjoy himself. His
natural and acquired authority blos
somed wonderfully when he took on
the new Job, and, ns Hlaker never
swore, tho admiral's L'lft of langunge
was a great vicarious satisfaction to
him. Wiggins accepted the situation
without a murmur. Even Simpson
himself boro no malice when his sup
plnutcr not only showed none, but after
knocking the bo'sun's head ngnlnst a
bollard gav.i his placo to tho former
mate. Though he kept tho men work
ing, and got tho last ounce out of
them, none of them wero down on him.
"I tell you he's an admiral, sure,"
they said.
"Ho's got all tho ways of one. I
own," said Hill, an old man-o'-war's
man. "I Hpokc to an admiral myself,
once; or, rather, he spoke to me."
"What did he say?" asked the rest
of his watch.
"He said," replied Bill, proudly, "he
tipped and nald, 'You cross-eyed son of
a dog, if you don't Jump, I'll bash the
ugly head of you!' And you bet I
jumped. Oh, he's all the ways of some
admirals, ho has!"
"Well, admiral or none," said tho
rest of tho crowd, "things goes on
pleasanter than they done when you
was mnto, Simpson."
And Simpson grunted.
"And he gets more work out of us
than you done, cither, Simpson, for till
yer haniinorln' of us."
"I'll likely be hammcrln' some of you
again shortly," said Simpson. And as
ho was cock of tho walk In tho fo'c's'le,
whatever ho was In the ship, the others
dried up.
Nothing of great Interest happened
till thoy wero well east of tho Horn
and hnuled up for the northward run.
And thon Blaker took to religion (or
what ho called religion) and rum In
equally undiluted doses.
"I'm u mlserablo sinner, I am," he
said to tho Admiral; "but, all the same,
I'll do my duty to the crowd."
He called them aft and preached to
them for two hours. And when one
man yawned ho laid him out with a
woll-dlrected belaylng-pln. The next
day, when It breezed up heavily nnd
they wero shortening sail, ho enllel all
hands down from aloft, on tho ground
that their souls wero of more impor
tance than the work In hnnd.
"Como down on deck, you miserable
sinners," said Hlaker, through a speak-Ing-trumpct.
His volco rose triumph
antly nbovo the roar of tho gale. "Como
down on dock and listen to me. For
though I'm a mlserablo sinner, too,
there'B some hopes for mo, nnd for you
there's none unless you mends your
ways In accordance with what I'm tell-
in' you."
Even with tno speaking trumpet ho
could hardly make himself heard over
the roar of the Increasing galo and tho
thunderous slatting of tho tnree top
sails in tho spllling-linos.
"Don't you think, sir, that they'd
hotter mako tho topsall.i fast before
you speak to them?" said tho Admiral.
"No, I don't," replied Blaker, "not
much, I don't not by a jugful. For if
one of 'em went overboard I'd bo re
sponsible before tho Throne. And
don't you forgot It."
"He's mad," said Sir Richard, "mad
as a March hare. She'll be shaking tho
sticks out of her soon."
Ho leant ovor tho break of tho poop
nnd called up Wiggins.
"Mr. Wiggins, one word with you."
Wiggins came up, as Blaker roared
his, text through the trnmpet.
"Will you stand by me, Mr. Wiggins,
If I knock him down and take com
mand?" "I will, but mind his gun," said Wig
gins. "When he's very bad he'll shoot."
It was not any fear of Blaker's six
shooter that mado the Admiral hesi
tate. To take tho command oven from
a madman at sea Is a ticklish task, and
mny land a man In gaol for nil his bo
Ing a Shanghaied admiral,
"I toll you, Mr. Wiggins, that Simp-
WSUJiM11 WW"1 wmi mm mi fwrfw,i
son Is a good man. I'll bring him nft
And Wiggins made no objection when
Simpson was railed up by the Admiral.
"Mr. Simpson," said the mate, "this
Is getting past a Joke. Have you any
objection to taking on your old Job II
I Fcciiro this preaching madman and
tnko command?"
Simpson was "full up" of die fo'c's'le,
and ns he had a very wholesome ad
miration for the ndmlral ho was by no
menus loth to return to his old quar
ters. "I'm with you, sir. In another quar
ter of an hour we shall havo tho stlcki
out of her."
And still Hlaker bellowed Scrlptura
down the wind. Ho was still bellow
ing, though what ho believed was not
Scripture, when Simpson anil Wiggins
took him down below after live min
utes of a row, lit which the deposed
captain showed something of his un
dent form as the terror of the Western
Ocean. As they went the admiral, now
promoted to being captain of a Capo
Horner, plckrd up the battered speak
ing trumpet and wiped sumo blood
from his face which had been In col
lision. ,
"Up aloft with you, and make those
topsails fast," he roared. "Look alive,
men. look alive!"
And they did look alive. For ' Dick
ey Dunn" never needed n speaking
trumpet in any wind that ever blew.
When tblnus wore snucced down and'
the California wus walking uoith ntl
an easy mil tromcnuoiis gnu no ten
like a man again. Ho turned to Simp
son and Wiggins with a happy smile.
"Now we're comfortable, and things
aro as they should be, Mr. Simpson, let
tho men have a tot of grog. And
how's Mr. Hlaker?"
"Wnal." salt! Simpson, cheerfully,
"when we left him ho wnsn't exactly
what you would call religious nor re
signed." Hut if Hlaker wan not happy the Ad
miral was thoroughly delighted.
"Now you see what I said was true,"
ho declared at dinner that night. "If
I hadn't been an admiral and a man
born to iImj. how could I have been
shipped on board thin ship as a fore
mast hand and come to be captain In
six weeks? I'll be bound you never
heard of a similar ease, Mr. Simpson."
' And Simpson never had.
"Was It Shanghai Smith, do you
think, as put you here?" ho asked.
Tho admiral had never heard ol
Shnughal Smith.
"When I get back I'll ilnd out," ha
said. "And if it was I'll not trouble
the law, Mr. Simpson. I never allow
any man to handle mo without getting
more than even."
"You don't," said Simpson. If his
manner wns dry It was sincere.
"Rut I don't bear malice afterwards.
Your health, Mr. Simpson. This kind
of trade breeds good seamen after all.
Hut you are all u trifle rough."
Simpson explained that thoy had to
"When the owner's scheme Is to havo
one man do throe men's work, thoy
have to get men who will mako 'em do
It. And when the owners get a bad
name, and their ships n worse, then
men llko Shanghai Smith havo to find
us crows. If you could get back to
San Francisco and hammer an owner
somo of us would bo obliged lo you,
"Ah! when I get back," said tho Ad
miral. "This will be a remarkable yarn
for mo to tell, Mr. Simpson. I still feel
In a kind of dream. Would you obllgo
mo by going to Mr. Hlaker nnd telling,
him that if lie continues to hammer at
that door I'll have the hose turned on
And when Simpson went to carry
this messago tho Admiral put his feet
on the table and indulged In n reverie.
"I'll make a noto nbout Shanghnl
Smith and settle with him In full. But
1 shall rlso higher yet. 1 know It's In
me, Stewurd!"
"Yes, sir," cald tho stoward.
"1 think I'll have somo grog."

The American Museum of Natural
History has Just placed on exhibition
tho magnificent head and antlers of
iv new type of caribou, hitherto un
known to science.
The specimen obtained Is consid
ered an Important contribution to our
knowledge of tho distribution of cari
bou In northern North America. It
was found In the Kenal Peninsula,
Alaska. The technical nainu of this
new specimen Is Renglfcr Stonel. Un
fortunately, tho entire body of tho
caribou could not be preserved. The
measurement of tho animals In Mesh
were as follows; Full length, 7 feet I
Inch; height to withers, 4 feet . The
two distinctive features which mark
this new member of tho caribou group
aro Its colorations and large and un
usual form of antlers. Tho color des
cription is as follows:
"Fiont of nose black lo middle ot
nostrils, chin and edges of lower Up
grayish or silvery white; top of nose,
from the whlto muzzle back to a point
opposite the eyes, black, passing into
lark (blackish) brown posteriorly and
on tho sides of the head to below
the eyes; checks and throat still light
er brown; a narrow apace surrounding
the eye and tear duct grayish; top iiwl
sides of neck dark grayish brown,
becoming lighter and grayer at the
base of the neck, and then abruptly
darker In front of shoulders (skin ot
body not preserved); front ot neck
white, forming a longitudinal Bharply
defined bund four to llvo Inches wide,
of greatly lengthened white )ialr, In
strong contrast with the Bides of tho
This heavy fringe of white hair on
tho front of the neck, with Its rtrik
Ing contrast In color with tho adjoin
ing portions of the neck, forms an
easily distinguishing mark from nil
other existing types. Tho antlers aro
much heavier, with better developed
species, whllo a special point of dif
ference Is found In tho largo size and
peculiar form of tho front branch of
tho antlers.
Tho queer looking craft Illustrated
below" has been designed by James I.
Pool of Brooklyn. N. Y with tho In
tention ot Improving the fncllltle.i for
handling tho sails and steering tho
boat. Iu spite of the single sail pro
jecting from one sldo of tho mast on
a long boom, the Inventor provides
a pair of sails equally balanced on
either side of tho mast, and capablo
of adjustment In tacking or Balling
with tho wind to obtain tho maximum
speed with minimum strain on tho
must. Tho sails aro set in swinging
frames secured to horizontal booms
on tho mast, with tho free edge of
each sail turned toward tho mast and
under easy control of tho boatman
In the stern of tho vessel. Instead ot
easing oft or drawing In tho long
main boom of a slnglo sail in tncktng
or changing the course, the sailor
swings tho shortest boom of tho new
craft around on tho mast until thoy
reach tho nnmo nnglo that the old nnll
would havo occupied, when tho anils
are adjusted In parallel planes, und
each receives an equal amount ot
wind, nnd consequently divides tho
strain and pulls evenly on tho mast. tho Lord's Nickel,

Poachers In the Adlrondackn and
other wild sections ot New York aro
taking trout by moans of a hook tied
to tho end of a stick. The poarhet
lira down upon a log or stump above
somo deep pool In u trout stream and
brings the stick close alongside tho
fish, working It ever and ever no care
fully lest no llsh should be frightened
away. When tho pole Is only a hair's
breadth from the side of the trout tho
'tlsher gives a Jerk, and, nine times out
of ton, hooks the tlsh. Tho method Is
specially destructive to good sport, fot
the reason that It enables the po.'chei
to take the wary old trout that sue

Closely allied Is the method of stur

streams running Into Lake Superior

geon has a way when It runs up a

against every bit of wood that may bi

out In a bout or takes his placo at a
bridge with a pole, on the end of which
aro tied three hooks pointing In three
different directions from a common
center. This end of the pole ho plantf
on the bottom of the stream, whlk
